Disc Golf

Take a stroll to Eastern Oregon University and check out their campus. The autumn colors are starting to pop. Bring along a set of discs (or visit The Bobolink — 1102 Washington Avenue, downtown to procure some) and play the 9 hole course right through the middle of campus.

Outdoor Recreation

While visiting you may want to check out some of the other recreational options in our area.  20 Films is a lot of sitting, taking some time to get outdoors in the mornings to stretch your legs might be nice, or bring your bike along and hit some trails.  For a good guide into your options visit: http://www.unioncountychamber.org/frontpage/things-to-do
